, south korea and panama because we believe in the sale and the opportunity for american producers to sell their product around the globe. and yet, we saw at least some who at usda have the view that we need to be discouraging the consumption of meat for both environmental and health reasons. particularly troublesome is the fact that the department of agriculture was citing the united nations as a reason that we ought to discourage the consumption of beef for environmental reasons. our department of agriculture' positions ought to be based on sound science, not some u.n. study. beef is an important and vital component of the kansas economy. we're the second-largest beef-producing state in the country. economic impact to our country is around $44 billion. exports in 2011, beef exports were over $4.08 billion. this matters to us greatly. and this is happening at a time in which the cattle producers of kansas and across the midwest, including the state of the president today, the drought is so damaging to us. it's also happening at a time in which we've been having a debate about a farm bill.

? >why? >> i can go back to the invasion of panama in 1989 and worked for. we realize that just having a military battle you had one was not the end of the game. perhaps we should have done at the beginning to avoid that battle in the first time -- place or, having won the battle, how do we preserve the peace? >> you have to be careful when we talk about these terms such as smart power or heart power or soft power. i'm reminded of a conversation i had with the former archbishop of canterbury in 2003. you might have been there. it was on the eve of the second gulf war. the archbishops stood up and said, general powell, why don't we just use soft power? it was a critique of what we were getting ready to do. the answer i gave him was that it was not soft power that rescue britain from hitler. it was part power. you had to have all of it. when we won with hard power in world war ii, we use soft power in germany and asia to create democracies. the importance of this coalition, what makes what we are doing tonight so important, is that we understand that we need it all. we have been shortcha
